The group Bella saw was about 40 people; with a feeding every two weeks that comes to over 1,000 people per year, and over 10,000 people over the last decade. People do disappear, yes, but that many people in regular groups of 40 at a time? And nothing is known about it, nobody in the entire world has ever put together a stunning pattern of groups of 40 people disappearing every two weeks like clockwork for decades on end? Groups that include children? Missing human reports that spike every two weeks, all with a group tour or vacation prize connection? Wow. Sorry, that is absolutely impossible.

True, this isn’t an actual contradiction, just another gap that wasn’t filled in by the Guide, though I was very interested in Heidi’s bio to see what would be attempted. In the end, SM can't avoid something that every vamp author is eventually guilty of, which is portraying humans as clueless cattle at some point.
BTW, does anyone in the Twi universe work harder for less compensation than Heidi? An eternity of bringing humans to the lazy duff Volturi, working 24/7/365, all for a couple hours every few weeks of being able to wear a cloak that was dyed a few shades darker that the regular guard? And then she’s back on the road again. That is one crappy job.
